About the Centre

This is an ambitious project of Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee being implemented through Sun Foundation. The idea behind the formation of ‘Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Holographic Auditorium and International Centre for Sikh Studies’ is to propagate the life, philosophy and teachings of Sikh Guru Sahiban and also showcase the unique martyrdom of Ninth Guru Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur ji and sacrifices made by tenth Nanak Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji.

The Centre has three wings under its umbrella. Holographic show has been produced with the latest technology prevalent in the globe. This 45 minute show is knitted in a way that one can know the entire history of Sikhism from its inception to till date. All the major incidents/developments in the formation of a Sikh are included in the display. Auditorium has been designed in 360 Degree where audience enjoys the effects of Dolby sound. Dome of the Auditorium is used as screen which is the finest way to project immersive dome-based video display environment. The dome, is filled with real time (interactive), pre-rendered (linear) computer animations and graphics. This fulldome environments evolved from numerous influences, including immersive art and a well-knitted history of Sikhism, with technological roots in domed architecture. In the center of the auditorium holographic display is a matter of attraction that utilizes light diffraction to create a virtual three-dimensional image. When looking at the holographic display, the brain is instantly tricked by the illusion of having a physical object or real environment with the digital overlay.

International Research Centre for Sikh Studies is also an ambitious initiative to carry out/ encourage the research on various aspects of this latest religion and its features. A digital library has been established where all source material required for research is being accumulated from different sources. Idea is to build digital library in which all the source material available anywhere in the world is available on the click of the mouse of one’s computer. The digital library will be connected through internet with all such endeavors available in any part of the globe. Thus, making it a focal point for the researchers, who wish to study and analyze this unique philosophy of Sikh Gurus and other contributors in Sri Guru Granth Sahib as well as other Sikh scriptures.

The third part is dedicated to Art Gallery in which paintings on different aspects of Sikhism, created by who and who of our great painters have been displayed. Keeping in mind that art is one of the languages which can connect people’s hearts, this gallery is created as an resource center and museum of sorts, dedicated to Sikh culture and heritage. The goal is to showcase our rich heritage as well as to educate our communities through displays of art. The art gallery is amazing and rich with information on the history of Sikhs.
